Pluto and Proserpina by Gian Lorenzo Bernini

stabletransit:

Pluto e Proserpina (Pluto and Persephone)

By far, my favorite piece of almost all Italian art by my favorite Italian artist, Bernini. And to think, this was done with marble, 400 years ago, by a man of only 23 years.

    This actually depicts the rape of Persephone, so while I cringe when I look at it, I can’t help but stare in awe at...
